Maintaining an Active Lifestyle in Your Golden Years — Experiencing the Joy of Senior Community Living at Deer Trail Assisted Living


Senior Community Living


Living a healthy and vigorous lifestyle doesn’t come with an age limit – it’s essential for everyone! However, it becomes of paramount importance during one’s ‘Golden Years,’ which is what we at Deer Trail Assisted Living in Rock Springs, WY understand and encourage. Catering to the active life of our residents is one of the many things we celebrate with senior community living.


Understandably, seniors may feel hesitant about exercising as they age. The thought of exerting too much energy or facing potential injury could act as deterrents. However, with the recommended 150 minutes of aerobic activity each week for those aged 65 and older, the benefits far outweigh the effort!


At Deer Trail Assisted Living, we foster an environment where our seniors enjoy a variety of physically and mentally stimulating activities. Simple, low-impact exercises can significantly uplift their health and mood, making daily fitness far less daunting!


We always emphasize one of the simplest, yet most rewarding exercises: walking. You can stroll at your own pace around the beautiful walking trails at our senior living community. Moreover, daily walks not only help attain the recommended aerobic exercise but also contribute to overall mental wellbeing, presenting an opportunity to chat with other residents, make new friends, or even enjoy a bit of time outdoors.


Gardening is another enriching option in our community. It allows seniors to flex the muscles in their arms and hands and, not to mention, spark their creativity and mental fortitude. It’s a gentle, yet impactful, way to stay active while beautifying their surroundings.


And don’t let mobility limitations deter you. Chair exercises such as standing and sitting routines are frequently held, allowing our residents to participate and effectively work their core muscles regardless of their mobility level.


Our community celebrations don’t stop at weekly exercises! At Deer Trail Assisted Living, countless exciting activities happen all year round. We believe in instilling a sense of community, fun, and health, bringing together our vibrant residents to celebrate their senior community living journey.


In a nutshell, keeping active physically and mentally can make senior living an incredible experience, and at Deer Trail Assisted Living, we make sure this is a reality for every resident. Our senior community living is here to empower you to live a fulfilling, healthy lifestyle while connecting with others throughout your golden years.


At Deer Trail Assisted Living, we strive to offer an exciting schedule of events and personalized care, tailored to the vibrant lifestyles and unique needs of our wonderful residents. Contact us today to discover what makes our community truly exceptional.
